God makes His power available for everybody, but who will decide to tap into that power by tapping into a relationship of love with the Father and with the people around them?

In 1 Samuel we see a biblical example of the correlation between love and prosperity. David was a teenager who obeyed God by spending time with Him. When he was presented with the opportunity to make his whole family free of debt, marry the king's daughter, and get her inheritance by killing Goliath the giant, he couldn't understand why anyone wouldn't accept the challenge.

So he said,
Who is this uncircumcised Philistine who doesn't even have a covenant with God? I killed a lion and a bear by standing on this covenant. I knew that lion couldn't mess with me, because God loves me. And because I know God loves me, I'm going to bring this big Philistine down.
(1 Sam. 17:26,34-37)
Because David was confident in God's love for Him, he faced that giant, and God empowered him to kill Goliath. As a result, victory and wealth was transferred to him in abundance.

Can you imagine at age 17 getting your parents out of debt? Is it hard for you to imagine getting yourself out of debt now? Maybe you're believing God for a promotion and it hasn't come yet. Or maybe you're believing God for healing or for restoration in your marriage or family and it hasn't come yet.

Have You Checked Your Battery Lately?
You've been busily looking over the faith steps you've been taking and have increased your confessions, but maybe that's not the area you should be examining. Maybe the area you should be looking at very closely is that battery called love, because faith won't work without the batteries.

We may understand the prosperity message. But if we get all the worldly goods and still don't have love, it's all worthless.

Only when we are rooted and grounded in the love of God, only when we love God and love one another and only when we keep God's commandments will God bring us to the harvest of our dreams and desires.

And you have invested too much time, too much prayer and too much money not to get that harvest!
